What is the Global Day of Jewish Learning?
When is it?

November 15, 2015, Jews all around the world will come together in their communities, homes, and online to celebrate our shared heritage. To be Jewish is to think, to study, and to learn, so that’s how we’ll celebrate! On the Global Day of Jewish Learning, Jews everywhere will focus their attention to our shared Jewish texts to glean wisdom, ask questions, and feel a sense of being part of one people.

Why participate in the Global Day of Jewish Learning?

The Global Day of Jewish Learning is an opportunity for Jews around the world to unite through our shared texts. Participating can be a benefit in many ways:

  • Uniting our entire community, regardless of affiliation;
  • Promoting Jewish education and empowering local educators;
  • Including our community in a worldwide, ground breaking event.

Is the Global Day of Learning for all Jews?

Yes, the Global Day is for all Jews regardless of learning background or religious affiliation. The classes for the Global Day have been created specifically for all audiences; no prior knowledge of Hebrew or Jewish text is necessary in order to participate in the Global Day.

What didn’t I ask?

There is no charge, you do not need to register in advance and there will not be a test!
